    HOW TO STYLE MAXI SKIRTS…

    On our first post on SFS by Mimi, I will be talking about maxi skirts. Maxi skirts have been relegated to the background and used more as a utility item than dress up.

    Admittedly, after a while our personal style reaches a certain plateau and it seems monotonous and boring  where we aren’t excited about our clothes or even bother about revamping them. I have been there and it sucks hence the need to experiment with other style groups. I have experimented with different style categories but the one I usually revert to when I need a change is the boho style. The Boho look is very unique and when properly executed, chic and stylish.
